Michael Fassbender may be one of the best actors around, but he thinks there’s still room for improvement.

The Steve Jobs star was the honoree at the Toronto Film Festival’s pre-opening night fundraising event on Wednesday (Sept. 7) where he revealed that he doesn’t believe his performance as Magneto in X-Men: Days of Future Past is his best work.

According to Vulture, the actor visibly cringed at the event when they showed a clip of him as Magneto in an angry state.

“I don’t actually like that performance there, to be honest,” admitted Fassbender. “I just think it’s me shouting. It’s just like…some dude shouting.”

Currently, you can catch Fassbender starring opposite Alicia Vikander and Rachel Weisz in the romantic drama, The Light Between Oceans. While the actor seemingly tends to gravitate toward dramas, Fassbender also revealed that he’s itching to try his hand at comedy, but laments that perhaps “people don’t think of [him] that way.”

Up next fans will be able to catch Fassbender starring as Callum Lynch in Assassin’s Creed. The upcoming fantasy adventure is based on the popular video game series of the same name and finds Fassbender playing a man named Callum Lynch who gains the skills of a Master Assassin after exploring the memories of his ancestor, Aguilar.

Assassin’s Creed hits theaters on Dec. 21.
